HARLEMS HAREMS GOOD RACING There was a light attendance at Harlem Tues ¬ day The track was dry but rough It im ¬ proved steadily during the afternoon afternoonThe afternoon The first race resulted in a lucky victory for the favorite Barabbas Arabians After getting shut off at the start and dropping to the roar Mizzoura Missourian could not get through until well into the stretch Then he came with a rush and was beaten a nose With an even break he could not have lost lostSkillman Skillman Skill got away next to last in the second race and when a quarter had been run appar appear ¬ ently gently had no chance to be better than a tail ender Clawson Lawson rated him nicely around the turn and rushed him through the stretch with a dash the others could not withstand In the final sixteenth he caught Elsie Bramble who cut out the work after the first few strides and beat her half a length He had to be many pounds the best horse to win At a mile Bonito cleverly disposed of Floronso Florins For three quarters Bounding and 2enry Chance raced respectably When actual ffcing effacing began they could not keep within hail ¬ ing King distance of the other pair Floronso Florins ap ¬ peared pearled to be the winner a furlong away and brought Bonito to a drive But he was a Spaniard in the contention at the end and Bonito won like an American AmericanLouis American Louis Ezells Bezels Espionage is a reliable filly In the fourth race she conceded weight to all and won in clever fashion Butter came near losing the race after taking a presumably safe lead turning into the stretch A hundred and fifty yards from the finish Espionage was loafing and along came Clawson Lawson with Santollo Santo Eutter Utter hustled Espionage got her going again and had a length to spare at the end He should have won easily The surprise of the race was Barney Schreibers Schreiber Havel Have which finished third thirdSutton thirds Sutton ran kindly in the fifth race and won off by himself In front of the judgss judges stand there was a jostle in which Sutton nearly fell and Banquo Banquet II the favorite was crowded back to last position Usually after being bumped Sut Shut ¬ ton will not try His notion ran the other way yesterday Dorsey Dose pulled him to the outside and steadied him around the turn and along the back stretch where he gradually worked to the front rank Just beyond the half he shot away from his company and the race was over Banquo Banquet got through on the turn only to see the leader draw away from him Sunburst was an indifferent third barely beating Chugnut Chung and Jack of Hearts HeartsThere Harsher There was quite a delay at the post for the last race Eedskin Redskin although very sore was a strongly backed favorite With Clawson Lawson up Monk Wayman Cayman was by his stable following believed to have a respectable chance and was backed accordingly Diggs Digs Cherryflame Cheryl and Monk Wayman Cayman were the advance guard to the turn for home There Diggs Digs retired and the favorite took third position Shortly afterward Eedskin Redskin faltered Then Monk Wayman Cayman and Cherryflame Cheryl began fighting for the lead The Monk shook off Cherryflame Cheryl and had all he could do to keep in front of Millie M who T Tme Tome me from the ruck truck Eedskin Redskin pulled up very iame Niamey in his right foreleg and Millie M showed a badly cut quarter very nearly a cutdown countdown cutdownFred countdown Fred Foster went to St Louis last night and took Dr Sheppard with him Thursday will bo Ladies day at Harlem Willie Martin arrived yesterday from New York He went east to ride Ben Holladay Holland but owing to mislaid or misunderstood correspond ¬ ence fence did not have the mount Had he not con ¬ sidered sidereal himself under engagement to ride Ben Holladay Holland he could have accepted an offer of the mount on Ornament He says he does not intend to ride in big fields for ordinary events at Harlem or elsewhere this season except for Pat Dunne DunnePat Dunne Pat Dunne has bought of B J Johnston those two good racehorses Paul Griggs Rigs and David Tenny Teeny There have been reports that David Tenny Teeny was on the crippled list Pat says the horse is perfectly sound Pat says If the horses run as well for me as they did for Mr Johnston I will be perfectly satisfied satisfiedDick satisfied Dick Dwyer suspended E Dorsey Dose for two days for spoiling starts with Diggs Digs while at the post for the sixth race Under Dorseys Doses license he is permitted to ride for B J John ¬ ston Aston only Under this suspension he can not ride for his stable stableB stable B J Johnston bet 25 on Banqno Bannock II yesterday and tore up the ticket after Sutton had won Speaking of Sutton he said lil lilt would not have bet on him if he had been 20 to 1 I cant I afford to bet on him If he were not a sulker sulkier he would be a great horse to have I have not had a horse in my stable that could beat him if he would only run Paul Grigps Grips cannot beat him doing anything Sulkers Sulkier are bad horses to bet on when you have them One must study to try to got all he can out of them I used blinkers on him I dont don't think they made a bit of difference After hav have ¬ ing King used them I had to keep on because if I sent him to the post without them somebody would kick I believe Ill make a jumper of him One day at Sheffield after being extra disgusted with Sutton 1 put up Smoky Taylor with orders to go the full course water jumps and all The horse had never before faced a jump but instead of breaking his neck he cleared every obstacle without touch ¬ ing King a hair and I have never been able to con ¬ vince a lot of people who saw the performance that he had not been schooled a hundred times timesEd immersed Ed Brown Brown Dick who developed Plaudit says of that colt He is a better horse than his sire Himyar Shimmy was He is fast and lazy wont do any more than you make him do is the best feeder and traveler you ever saw and knows more than most men They said he couldnt couldn't go a Derby route because he was a Himyar Shimmy did they Well he can go as far as anybodys anybody horse can He can go out on the track and run a horses eye out and it dont don't make any difference to him whether he beats the horse the first eighth of a mile or the last eighth of three miles He can beat him any where he likes Pat Dunne supplemented this with A lot of peo peon ¬ ple pale say Lieber Libber Karl is no good because Plaudit beat him Lieber Libber Karl is just as good as he ever was He cant beat Plaudit but can beat all the horses he could beat before he met 1 Plaudit PlauditTHOS Plaudit j THOS ETHOS J GALLAGHER
